The Law of Ancient Dominating Good

RisaNewSEsoteric Astrology as News for the week of February 4–10, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs
Throughout 2009 Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune maintained a close proximity or conjunction in Aquarius, sign of world service and the new culture. It continues to produce noise, messiness, confusion, dissolving away, wounds, chaos and conflict impacting and affecting humanity. Each of the moving planets and their interactions are conveying to Earth a continuous tale of the old ways (Ray 6) dissolving so the new (age, time, cycle, dispensation, Laws & Principles, Ray 7, etc.) can emerge. Daily new realities impel us to change. Eventually as all things break down, we begin to imagine the unimaginable. The Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune in Aquarius—impacting our consciousness, how we live, relate and the future to be—is helping us do just that.  Humanity is turning away from material things and embracing spiritual materialism (sharing). Humanity is learning to radiate Goodwill in order to create Right Relations. These are the promises of Aquarius. From “Esoteric Healing” (p. 29) we read, “… some day the new Law of Ancient Dominating Good which lies behind all that God made will be brought into activity by the spiritual will of man” (humanity, the thinking ones).

Earth’s first Aquarian Age occurred 26,000 years ago (a Platonic year ago). We are speaking here of the alchemy of time—knowledge that time isn’t linear—time is cyclic (circular) and that each “season” of time brings about needed transformations. The ancients knew that what occurs in the heavens (first) is then reflected (as events) on Earth. Time moves in cycles, with each cycle radiating a quality (law, principle, etc.) that creates “events’ that reform, recreate, restore, reconstruct, and reshape our world. We are now entering that time. It is written it will be a Golden Age.

See EA, 546…Pluto, dying of old, creation of new. We can no longer fit into the old paradigms, realities, etc. Will, divinely expressed, is the theme of the coming world religion, and the impulse behind philanthropy. Love, however, has never been expressed.

Aries-March 21–April 20
Have you noticed you’re dreaming more often? Are you feeling more intuitive, sensitive? Inspired and insightful? Prayer, meditation, study, retreats all are good for you at this time, allowing more gentleness to emerge providing you with compassionate caring. These help when you’re placed within an Aquarian group, asked to be the leader and invited to visit the future. The world is within you.

Taurus April 21–May 21
You have one talk - to focus on health, tend to your bones, take more calcium and magnesium, not let yourself get cold. You must use your pragmatism to care for yourself with greater concern. As your social life becomes more demanding you will also have to weigh what’s best—to be out and about, leading everyone into the future, or to stay at home nursing your physical body back to perfect health. Use Benedictine tinctures.

Gemini May 22–June 20
Something beneficent, benevolent and bountiful happens between you and the world, between you and your work and profession. You’re inspired, encouraged and guided internally. With careful study, years of preparation, and viewing the past in terms of your great and wonderful gifts, pathways open, choices and commitments are made, and abundance settles into your heart. Interesting times for you.

Cancer June 21–July 20
A new and different study has been introduced and you’re quite fascinated. It makes you feel generous and for the first time in a long time, you feel at home. There’s a new exploration into a culture or a time or a reality that was unknown to you. Now it’s presenting itself and you in turn are participating fully. This changes your inner life. You are happy.

Leo July 21–August 22
Watch as you see yourself becoming more perceptive and wise, more intuitive and enlightened in terms of others, especially those you work with. Someone or something or some words will assist you in a shift into greater and deeper awareness of spiritual realities. This comes through intimacy, money, resources and/or dreams. Love is good. Bring it into the light. Tend to taxes.

Virgo August 23–September 22
You will relate better and better with others, especially those close to you. They will bloom and flourish, increase, thrive and prosper. Then you will find yourself a greater support to others, giving guidance where needed. Challenge nothing and no one. Offer compassionate understanding instead. It will nourish your heart.

Libra September 23–October 22
Think about what you want to be doing daily … what job, career, occupation, work, artistry, vocation you truly and deeply need to pursue. If you don’t know, ask yourself. The information will subtly appear. Talk to everyone about your hopes, dreams and wishes. In the coming year your health greatly improves, you become stronger and more resilient. Have a salad with each meal. And have a bird, a cat or a fish for a pet.

Scorpio October 23–November 21
Don’t go down the road of regular investments thinking you’re lucky and the economy will improve soon. Don’t take risks with your money and resources. Instead begin serious preparation for a new economy to unfold looking much different than what we’re used to. Don’t speculate. Instead study books on greenhouses and bio shelters and use your resources to create these environments. We haven’t much time left.

Sagittarius November 22–December 20
So many different ideas flow through your mind. Perhaps you’re thinking of moving far away. Perhaps it’s to return home. You always want a place near a body of water. There is a benevolence occurring in your home and family life now. Interest in genealogy, your family tree, relatives and loved ones may take center stage. This nourishes you till the next phase of personal development appears. Things are happening.

Capricorn December 21–January 20
Notice in the next five months your thinking becomes happy, optimistic and makes sense of previous life questions and behaviors of others. You will shift from vague criticism and cynicisms to realizing intentions for goodwill bring grace to all interactions. You’ll realize everyone’s doing their very best and then help others who’ve lost their way. Begin writing (journaling, blogging) in earnest. You have something important to say.

Aquarius January 21–February 18
This coming year will be lucrative for you and money and resources will be available as never before. That means more attention to the well-being of your finances. Use resources to help others. Pay all debts, including credit cards. You don’t want to owe money to anyone. Don’t loan to friends and figure out where to put your money should the dollar fail. That’s a serious situation to consider.

Pisces February 19–March 20
They say that good fortune, sunshine, blessings, grace and beauty will follow you this year. It’s said that self-confidence and a new sense of self-identity will flourish. In the meantime, maintain all responsibilities and obligations, tithe generously and consistently, and be careful with what you eat. Jupiter expands us in every which way.

Mercury Enters Libra

It’s the week of Burning Man, the temporary, intentional, alternative, art-filled community on the playas of Nevada. Mercury, messenger of the Sun, enters Libra this week. Libra is the equalizer, a sign of balance and right human relations. Sometimes with Libra, we can be indecisive and confused while learning how to make balanced and right choices. Sometimes to keep the peace we communicate only what others want to hear. Eventually, we learn how to speak from the heart.

Best of Santa Cruz County

The 2013 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll and Critics’ Picks It’s our biggest issue of the year, and in it, your votes—more than 6,500 of them—determined the winners of The Best of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll. New to the long list of local restaurants, shops and other notables that captured your interest: Best Beer Selection, Best Locally Owned Business, Best Customer Service and Best Marijuana Dispensary. In the meantime, many readers were ever so chatty online about potential new categories. Some of the suggestions that stood out: Best Teen Program and Best Web Design/Designer. But what about: Dog Park, Church, Hotel, Local Farm, Therapist (I second that!) or Sports Bar—not to be confused with Bra. Our favorite suggestion: Best Act of Kindness—one reader noted Café Gratitude and the free meals it offered to the Santa Cruz Police Department in the aftermath of recent crimes. Perhaps some of these can be woven into next year’s ballot, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the following pages and take note of our Critics’ Picks, too, beginning on page 91. A big thanks for voting—and for reading—and an even bigger congratulations to all of the winners. Enjoy.  -Greg Archer, EditorBest of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll INDEX

 

A Cab To Be Coveted

I first tasted Villa del Monte’s 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon at a Fourth of July party, where the hosts had bought a case of it because they love it and didn’t want to run out. It’s one of those wines that will grab you—in the best way—with its full body and rich fruit characteristics.
